Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide accommodations for disabled people?

Yes. As a disabled individual myself, I understand how important accommodations are. For example, for clients with visual impairment, I use a larger font. For people with processing disorders, I edit books in smaller portions. All you need to do is let me know your accommodations, and I will do my best to adjust the editing process to your needs accordingly. If you're unsure, we can work together to figure something out. Everything will be handled with respect and privacy. Please note that there's no voice or video chat option as an accommodation for myself.

Do you edit in British English, Canadian English, or AAVE?

Yes. Whether your poems are written in American English, African American Vernacular English, British English, Canadian English, or some other variation of English, I can help you. Just let me know which one it is.

What do you use to edit my poems?

I use Microsoft Word's track changes feature. It's important that you have MS Word or a word processor (i.e., Apache Open Office, Google Docs, etc.) that can display such changes and any comments that I make in the margins. This will also allow you to easily accept and reject each change as you see fit.

My poems are overly triggering, offensive, and/or disturbing. Can you still edit them?

I do not edit poetry books that are offensive, violent, or disturbing in nature. I'm very open about the fact that I'm an abuse survivor, so to avoid triggers of my own, I prefer not to edit a book about abuse in any form, especially if it's written in a highly visceral manner. I will also outright refuse projects that promote bullying, hate speech, ableism, sexism, homophobia, trans-exclusionary radical feminism, or racism. Thanks for understanding!

Do you edit Christian or Biblical poetry?

It isn't my area of expertise or interest as an editor and writer, so no.

Do you offer poetry writing or rewriting services?

Each poet has their own unique poetic style, and my job as an editor is to help poets hone their craft. Therefore, I don't rewrite or ghostwrite, but I do provide guidance and suggestions in my commentary and critiques.

How long have you been writing poetry, and can I read what you've written?

I've been writing poetry since I was 12, and I'm now in my thirties... So, quite a while! Within that time, I've written over 2,000 poems—some of which are published in various publications both online and in print (Mystic Living Today, Aurtistic Zine, Trans_Muted, Wishbone Words, etc). I'm also the author of several poetry books, including Nova Conscientia and Spectral Lines. To read my poetry for free, go to my blog. There are also a few excerpts at the bottom of my about me page.

What kind of poetry do you enjoy writing or reading?

I am fond of reading poetry that is healing and empowering in nature. I'm also deeply passionate about philosophical and mystical (not religious) poetry. My writing style is an eclectic assortment of philosophical, mystical, Zen, healing, magickal (yes, with a 'k'), nature-inspired, and surreal. Poetic advocacy is important to me, so I gravitate towards "poetry for change." Sometimes my poems rhyme (oftentimes unintentionally), sometimes they don't. I've written haiku, senryū, free-verse, sonnets, canzones, ghazals, etc. My preference is free-verse and experimental. Rumi is my favorite poet of all time! I also enjoy the writings of Lang Leav, Edgar Allan Poe, and Paulo Coelho.

How many poetry books have you edited so far?

I have edited over 600 poetry books, many of which are bestsellers.

What does the editing you do entail?

I correct grammar, punctuation, spelling, typing, capitalization, wording, and tense errors. I also add or remove punctuation to enhance the flow. In addition to that, I input line breaks or stanza breaks in areas that need it. Furthermore, I point out anything that lacks clarity, clichés, or weak word choices that can be improved upon (levels 2 and 3). That isn't an exhaustive description, so go here to read about my services in more detail.

How do I pay?

I accept payments via PayPal or Ko-fi. We can discuss other options if those two don't work for you.

What's the process like?

First, please fill out the form on this page to give me some information about your project. Within 48 hours, you will receive a response via email, and we will continue discussing everything.


Once a price quote is confirmed, I'll send you an editing contract to sign, and upon signing it, I'll need your manuscript in doc format to edit it.


Before I begin, 50% of that amount will be charged via one of the cash apps above. Halfway through the editing process, I'll give you an update, and the last half of the amount will be charged. For reference, a 5000-word manuscript usually takes about five hours to edit (depending on the editing level), which will cost $100 for level 1$200 for level 2, and $300 for level 3.


You'll receive the doc file with track changes on the date we agreed upon. If you have any questions at any point afterward, feel free to email me. A final proofread can be conducted at a third of the original price. If you have any questions or need further clarification, don't hesitate to contact me.
